Reasons We Share Personal Data

We share personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this statement. For example, companies we’ve hired to assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal data to provide those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any other purpose. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.

Finally, we will access, transfer, disclose, and preserve personal data, including your content, when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to:

  1. comply with applicable law or respond to valid legal process, including from law enforcement or other government agencies;
  2. protect our customers, for example to prevent spam or attempts to defraud users of our products, or to help prevent the loss of life or serious injury of anyone;
  3. operate and maintain the security of our products, including to prevent or stop an attack on our computer systems or networks; or
  4. protect the rights or property of Infomat, including enforcing the terms governing the use of the services – however, if we receive information indicating that someone is using our services to traffic in stolen intellectual or physical property of Infomat, we will not inspect a customer’s private content ourselves, but we may refer the matter to law enforcement.

Our Use of Cookies and Similar Technologies

Infomat uses cookies and similar technologies for several purposes,  including:

  • Storing your Preferences and Settings. Settings that enable our products to operate correctly or that maintain your preferences over time may be stored on your device.
  • Security. We use cookies to detect fraud and abuse of our websites and services.
  • Storing Information you Provide to a Website. When you provide information, we store the data in a cookie to remember the products and information you have added.

  • Feedback. Infomat uses cookies to enable you to provide feedback on a website.
  • Analytics. In order to provide our products, we use cookies and other identifiers to gather usage and performance data.

  • Performance. Infomat uses cookies for load balancing to ensure that websites remain up and running.

In addition to the cookies Infomat sets when you visit our website, third parties may also set cookies when you visit Infomat sites. In some cases, that is because we have hired the third party to provide services on our behalf, such as site analytics. Because your browser connects to those third parties’ web servers to retrieve that content, those third parties are able to set or read their own cookies on your device and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services.

How to Control Cookies

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but provide controls that allow you to block or delete them. For example, in Microsoft Edge, you can block or delete cookies by clicking Settings > Privacy > Cookies. Instructions for blocking or deleting cookies in other browsers may be available in each browser’s privacy or help documentation.

We also include web beacons in our promotional email messages or newsletters to determine whether you open and act on them.

 

Security of Personal Data

Infomat is committed to protecting the security of your personal data. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. For example, we store the personal data you provide on computer systems that have limited access and are in controlled facilities.
Where We Store and Process Personal Data

Personal data collected by Infomat will be stored and processed in your region. The storage location is chosen in order to operate efficiently, to improve performance, and to create redundancies in order to protect the data in the event of an outage or other problem. We take steps to ensure that the data we collect under this privacy statement is processed according to the provisions of this statement and the requirements of applicable law wherever the data is located.

Our Retention of Personal Data

Infomat retains personal data for as long as necessary to provide the products and fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other essential purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. Because these needs can vary for different data types in the context of different products, actual retention periods can vary significantly. The criteria used to determine the retention periods include:

  • How long is the personal data needed to provide the products and operate our business? This includes such things as maintaining and improving the performance of those products, keeping our systems secure, and maintaining appropriate business and financial records. This is the general rule that establishes the baseline for most data retention periods..
  • Is there an automated control, that enables the customer to access and delete the personal data at any time? If there is not, a shortened data retention time will generally be adopted.
  • Is the personal data of a sensitive type? If so, a shortened retention time would generally be appropriate.
  • Has Infomat adopted and announced a specific retention period for a certain data type? No
  • Has the user provided consent for a longer retention period? If so, we will retain data in accordance with your consent.
  • Is Infomat subject to a legal, contractual, or similar obligation to retain the data? Examples can include mandatory data retention laws in the applicable jurisdiction, government orders to preserve data relevant to an investigation, or data that must be retained for the purposes of litigation.
Changes to This Privacy Statement

We will update this privacy statement when necessary to reflect customer feedback and changes in our products. When we post changes to this statement, we will revise the “last updated” date at the bottom of the statement. If there are material changes to the statement or in how Infomat will use your personal data, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes before they take effect or by directly sending you a notification. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to learn how Infomat is protecting your information.
